Logitech offers new VOIP products

Logitech introduced an array of new products for voice over IP users, including a keyboard with dedicated voice calling buttons.

Logitech introduced an array of new products on Monday designed for VOIP (voice over Internet Protocol) users, including a keyboard with dedicated call management buttons and a speakerphone.

VOIP service provider Skype Ltd. worked with Logitech to make some of the products exclusive to Skype in Europe. The European version of the new Logitech EasyCall Desktop includes a Skype-specific keyboard with dedicated buttons for launching Skype, making a call, ending a call, changing a user's online status and speed-dialing.

The package also includes a mouse and headset as well as a speakerphone, which eliminates echo and has control buttons such as volume, mute, call answer and hang-up.

In the U.S., the package is optimized for use with Yahoo Messenger with Voice and AOL LLC's instant messenger service. It will sell in the U.S. for US$129.99 and will be available in stores in both the U.S. and Europe in mid-September. The companies did not reveal the suggested retail price for Europe.

Logitech also introduced a cordless handset for making and receiving Skype calls. The phone communicates wirelessly to a module that plugs into the USB (universal serial bus) port on a PC and can be used within 164 feet of the PC. It will start selling in October for US$199.99 in the U.S. and Europe.

Logitech will also sell a speakerphone, designed for VOIP calling, separate from the EasyCall package. The speakerphone connects to a PC via the USB port and will cost US$99.99 when it becomes available in the U.S. and Europe later this year.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
